Well That Looks Fun: Playing With A Handheld Tesla Coil Gun, Shot In Ultra Slow Motion

December 1, 2016


This is a video of Destin from Youtube channel Smarter Every Day (I'm the opposite) getting to play with a handheld tesla coil gun (well, after a brief history lesson about Nikola Tesla and building his own DIY music-playing coil), and shooting all the action in ultra slow motion. He even takes a blast to the hand to see what it feels like. Obviously, that got me thinking about-- "Taking a zap to the penis?" That's not what I was going to say. "What were you going to say then?" Well before I got interrupted I was GOING to say that got me thinking about...taking a zap...to...the tongue? Yeah, to the tongue. "You sure?" Stay out of my head.

Keep going for the video, but skip past 5:45 for the handheld tesla coil gun footage.

Thanks to hairless, who may or may not have gotten that way due to an electricity mishap.

    The whole video is pretty interesting overall, but if you want to jump straight to the 'Handheld TESLA COIL GUN at 28,000fps' part go to 7:34.

    The world would be a better place if more chicks got off to science.

    I got to meet Destin, he is such a freakin stud.

    Now he needs to add a laser lighting rod to it for guidance...

    Instant lighting gun.

    Boo!! That weapon sucked in Unreal Tournament 2003. Actually that whole game kind of sucked.

  • KLanD

    So you're willing to be the test subject to take a shot then?

  • GeneralDisorder

    Well, I don't have any known heart problems and I'm tired of living anyway... Sure thing. Let's do this!
